Our school is busy preparing for this year’s Stand-Up Awareness Week which takes place from 14th -18th November 2022. This is an annual campaign coordinated by BelongTo. This week is an opportunity for schools to celebrate and recognize their LGBTQ+ community and to show solidarity with young people and our colleagues to ensure they feel seen, heard, and safe.
Ensure everyone knows that biphobic, homophobic, and transphobic language and bullying will not be tolerated – main theme this year
This year we have established a Student Committee who will lead the planning of this week with our teachers.
Recently at a staff meeting our staff undertook training in the area of LGBTQ+ and will be certified in this training also.
